president. how do you deal with all that? >> well, the scrutiny certainly hasn't stopped. as we were talking about earlier. there was an article that came out today about the fact that i wear the same shoes a lot, which i'm actually wearing again this evening. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: can you believe that that's a story? you should be allowed to wear your shoes more than once. >> how dare i wear scuffed shoes. um, they're really comfortable. and i just -- [ cheers ] oh, thank you. yeah. [ light laughter ] i think it's something that working women and probably particularly working women new yorkers can empathize with me, and you find a good pair of shoes, you just stay with them. >> jimmy: you should be able to wear the same shoes that's -- [ cheers and applause ] i don't know how you do it, but you're great at doing it. >> wearing the same shoes? >> jimmy: no, the putting up with these stories coming out. [ laughter ] not wearing the same shoes. no, no, no, i don't know anything about your shoes. but putting up with these dumb stories that come out and just -- >> oh, well, i mean, you have to laugh. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i mean, with everything happening in the world, like this is what a newspapers gonna spend ink on? i mean -- >> jimmy: it's just silly.
12:14 am
i mean, you asked about last year. admittedly the biggest thing that happened in my life last year, was i became a mom for the second time. >> jimmy: i know, which is great. congratulations. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. my son aiden was born june 18th, so it's about to be his one-year birthday. [ audience aws ] yeah, he's really super-mushy. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: that's great. are you throwing a big party? >> his first word wasn't dada. >> jimmy: what? >> i know. >> jimmy: what were his first words? >> bye-bye. >> jimmy: oh, was it bye-bye? >> it was so sweet. >> jimmy: that's pretty cute. >> dada was his second word though. >> jimmy: dada is good. i'm trying really hard. >> i know you are, i know you are. so, for me, one of the great just stories last year while kind of advocating for my mom, whom i'm unabashedly unapologetically deeply biased toward -- [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: you should. >> she remains such an inspiration to me, was getting to become aiden's mom. and i took aiden with me on the campaign trail. and so i'm really grateful to everyone on my mom's remarkable campaign team who helped
12:15 am
of, do an event, breastfeed, do an interview, breastfeed, do an event, breastfeed, pump, do an interview, breastfeed. >> jimmy: okay, i get you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. [ light laughter ] >> you know, i mean, there was a lot of logistics, last year, that had to be navigated. and aiden was just an amazing little traveler and i'm so, so lucky to be his mom. [ audience aws ] >> jimmy: you did a good job. [ applause ] now, scarlet -- >> yes. >> jimmy: is two? >> two and a half. >> jimmy: two and a half, and you did a book reading for your -- your book, "she persisted." and all these kids started coming up to the stage. >> and she rushed to the stage. >> jimmy: she's like, "that's my mommy." look and see if you can find where her child is. [ audience aws ] she's like, yeah, i'm right there, just watching, it's like, "mommy, why are you reading to all these other kids?" [ light laughter ] >> no, so that was on saturday. and when i was putting her to bed saturday night, she said, hey mommy, can we read "she persisted." and i said, "oh, my gosh, like do you want to hear it again?" and she said, "yes, just for me." [ audience aws ] and i was like, "aw, she's so sweet." >> jimmy: tell me about
12:16 am
girls at home so i cannot wait to read this story to them. but what inspired you to write this? >> well, i think i was not alone, and that's probably an understatement, in being so struck by senator elizabeth warren's efforts to bring coretta scott king's words to the senate floor a few months ago. and i think, coretta scott king's words are always relevant, anywhere, but particularly in the senate, but she was censured. and senate majority leader mitch mcconell, in censuring senator warren said, nevertheless she persisted. and i don't think he had any idea how many women, and some men, would take it as a real badge of honor for senator warren, even more for mrs. king and really just for the women who persist throughout our country every day, and for the women who helped make our country healthier, more equitable, more just, more interesting, more beautiful. and so i was just thinking about like all these women who've inspired me, and i talked to my wonderful editor, at penguin, jill santopolo a
